Q - question

You may want to convert the solid to a Brep.

A - answer When attempting to perform a boolean operation on 3D solids (union, subtract...), AutoCAD displays the message "You may want to convert the solid to a Brep".

Switch off the history of edits on your 3D solid using the SOLIDHIST variable, with the BREP command, or with the "History" option in the Properties window (Ctrl+1).
